      MP: $2.79 (69.8 bb)
      CO: $3 (75 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $4 (100 bb)
      SB: $4.09 (102.3 bb)
      BB: $5 (125 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 4 4
      CO posts BB OOP, MP folds, CO raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.26) 2 J J (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, BB calls $0.04

      Turn: ($0.38) Q (3 players)
      BB checks, CO bets $0.04, Hero calls $0.04, BB calls $0.04

      River: ($0.50) Q (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero checks

      Results: $0.50 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: 2 J J Q Q
      CO showed T K and won $0.47 ($0.31 net)
      Hero mucked 4 4 and lost (-$0.16 net)
      BB showed T T and lost (-$0.16 net)

      Our opponent obviously seems fishy. The BB seems fishy as well.
      Thus does it make sense to 3bet this hand, or can we call for set value?

      What about postflop? Can I call these minbets?

      Still play for setvalue, post I just let it go and pick a better spot. GL!

      EDIT-- If you're up against 1 opponent and his cbet is minimum or if someone donks out for min, raising and turning hand into bluff is fine also.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Against that kind of Bet size I doubt that it's even wrong to Call. :D Especially when we getting that great odds.

      Best Regards.

      Are you referring to postflop calls as well?

      Yep. :) Sometimes you might even win the hand and for the given odds it should be good enough equity there.

      1) And if it wasn't a paired board?
      2) What if the bets were slightly bigger than $0.04 ($0.06, 0.08 etc.)?

      Most likely I'd just give it up if there are too many overcards.

      2) What if the bets were slightly bigger than $0.04 ($0.06, 0.08 etc.)?

      Good questions from your side. :D But most likely I'd just fold then and make it easy and simple with the PPs while you have people behind you.
